Oak - Click here to see what we have been learning
Welcome to Oak's Class Page. Here, you will find out all about what we have been learning and experiencing in our class.
We started the year with a residential trip to Robinwood in Alston, Cumbria. During the three days, we improved our resilience and problem-solving skills through activities such as wall climbing, canoeing, the trapeze, archery and an obstacle course. It was great to work together in teams and strengthen our friendships and sense of community.
In Science, we have been learning all about the circulatory system and the heart. During Science Week, we enjoyed a workshop where we had the chance to dissect a heart to find out more about what it's made up of. In one of our lessons, we explored how exercise impacts our breathing rate by exercising on the spot and then measuring our breathing rate just after finishing and then later at rest.
During our Forest School sessions, we have developed our skills with fire lighting, using the bow saw, loppers and sheath knives. We have cooked s'mores, rainbow toast and calzone pizza wraps on the fire! We've also had fun relaxing in the hammock, making a swing, 'cooking' in the mud kitchen, creating art using a technique called Hapa Zome and leaf rubbing. We've had so much fun, especially in the weeks where it was extra muddy!
